Hundreds of thousands of women around the world use Wellsprings progesterone creams to gain relief from the symptoms of menopause and other hormone problems.

Here are their top 6 tips for getting the very best results from our creams.

If you’re using our pump bottle dispenser, cream dosage is still measured in pea-sized amounts, not pumps from the bottle. Gently depress the pump until a pea-sized amount is dispensed.

1. Start with a double dose

Applying a double dosage of cream for the first month of application will kick start hormone balance and accelerate symptom reduction. This means 1/4 teaspoon (2 pea-sized amounts) instead of 1/8th teaspoon (1 pea-sized amount) per dose.

2. Keep your cream beside your bed

Wellsprings cream should be applied morning and night. Placing the jar or bottle beside your bed is a great way of reminding yourself to start and finish your day with your dose of cream. Alternatively keep it next to other products you use night and day such as your toothbrush or a day and night face cream.

3. Be sure to finish the full jar or pump bottle

It can take a month before symptoms improve so don’t give up if you there’s not an immediate improvement. While some women feel immediate benefits others report no difference for the first few weeks only for the full benefits to kick in in week 4 or 5.

4. Constantly change where you apply the cream to your body

If you apply the cream in the same place every time that spot will become saturated with natural progesterone reducing absorption and diminishing effectiveness. To avoid this make sure you apply to both a thin and fatty tissue area each day. You will find a suggested routine here:

5. Try an emergency dab

Some women find that applying a small dab to the inside of their wrists can help relieve a hot flush when it comes on. Give it a try!

6. Order your next jar or pump bottle in plenty of time

It can take 5 – 10 days for your cream to be delivered depending on where you live. Symptoms can return if you run out and can’t follow the application schedule – don’t get caught out! Make sure you place your order while you still have plenty of cream left. (Better still, stock up and save money with our 4 packs!)
